Spice Masters Lamb Meatballs

Yield: 3-4 Dozen Meatballs, Depending on Size

3 Lb. Ground Lamb

1 Small Zucchini, Grated (Optional)

1 Cup Fresh Bread Crumbs

1 Large Egg

2 Tbsp. Milk

1 Medium Shallot, Grated

1 Tsp. Granulated Garlic

1 Tbsp. Tomato Paste

1/2 Cup Toasted Pine Nuts (Optional)

1 1/2 Tablespoon Spice Masters Seasoning

1/2 Tsp. French Grey Salt

1/2 Tsp. Ground Tellicherry Peppercorns

We always make a large batch of these meatballs to have on hand in the freezer at the farm. That way we can make a simple, sensational meal in a flash. We serve them with Rice Pilaf or Grilled Vegetable Couscous. Sometimes we use them in Gyro Sandwiches. It is not necessary to use zucchini in your recipe, but we like it because adds moisture to the meatballs, along with flavor, texture, and color. 

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 

Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix with your hands until combined. Be careful not to over mix or knead, as doing so would make the meatballs tough.

 

Roll into 2” meatballs (or larger, if preferred). Place 1” apart on rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. At this point, you may freeze the meatballs for up to two months. Divide what you are not using immediately into meal-size portions, place in plastic freezer bags, and freeze.

French Grey
Sea Salt
 
With its artisanal, Old
World appeal, French
Grey sea salt is a favorite of
professional chefs. Hand harvested from mineral-rich salt beds, we believe this one is the perfect salt for accomplished Home Chefs as well.

Tellicherry
Peppercorns
 
No Home Chef's kitchen is
complete without Tellicherry
peppercorns, which are considered the finest pepper in the world. Left on the vine longer than other black peppercorns, these berries are given time for their complex, robust flavor to develop more fully.
